Other Hints For Greener Living:


  • IT’S A WRAP
  • Instead of wrapping gifts in glossy, nonrecyclable paper, cloak them in reusable items such as canvas bags, scarves, or drawstring pouches.

  • TREE-CLE DOWN THEORY
  • Don’t just toss your Christmas tree on the curb after the holidays. Many cities have Christmas tree recycling programs that turn trees into mulch or wood chips.

    WE DON'T KNOW

    What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

    If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
